Gorgeous Holiday Table Decor That's Festive, Fabulous & Best Of All...Earth Friendly!

Instead of going shopping and standing in endless lineups this year, looking for the next best trend in holiday decor and entertaining, why not look in your own backyard?  Whenever possible, try to use what you already own when it comes to tableware.  Why not try an out of the oridinary holiday colour scheme?  Second hand stores are wonderful, treasure-like coves for finding unique pieces to add to your table that will almost always give your guests something to converse about and guessing where you found your fabulous finds and how you had the time to put it all together!  

To add some texture to the table, just step outside!  You're sure to find branches, twigs and greenery that can easily be mixed with berries and fruit slices to make earth friendly bouquets, not to mention warm and inviting scents!  Simply put in a vase and grouped together in various heights will put that finishing touch that is sure to inspire your guests.

Your Values & Design Go Hand In Hand More Than You Think!

List 5 values that best describe you and think about ways to honour them in your home and let that influence all your design decisions.  You should have a clear vision of who you are, what you stand for and what your life’s purpose is. Know your strengths.  Were you born with a unique gift you can share with others?  Set a goal within the next few days and follow through with it.  Most importantly, always maintain a positive attitude!  With these thoughts in mind, you can make your dream a reality, and not just a vision.  So get out a pen, and paper and get with that plan!  Feel free to share your thoughts and comments here about how just a few simple changes transformed your life and home for the better!  Big or small, you might surprise yourself!  My goal is to help transform homes one at a time and maybe change a life or two in the meantime!

Create The Perfect Guest Bath...

Fresh ways that will welcome your guests and create that perfect bath just takes a few key luxury items. Here are a few tips to make their stay enjoyable and relaxed:

  • Towels. This is where to spend the most of your budget. Start with he most fabulous, luxurious bath towels you can find. You only need a couple, depending on how many guests you have of course. Mix them with a few lower priced so it won't break your bank account. Always include facecloths and hand towels. Don't forget the bath mat!
  • Cleanliness is next to godliness. Check out your local off price retailer for french soaps, monogrammed and natural bars as well as body scrubs and lotions for a fraction of the cost than regular shops.
  • You can find cozy spa like robes and slippers for 20-60% less at these same off price retailers.
  • Nothing says relax more than a few scented candles and aromatherapy oils while soaking in a soothing bath. You can find these at most retailers and always look for clearance deals!
